Turkey Hill LLC, Lancaster, Pa., announced plans to invest in its manufacturing operations.

Turkey Hill was acquired by an affiliate of Peak Rock Capital, Austin, Texas, from The Kroger Co., Cincinnati, in April. Now a standalone company, Turkey Hill is strategically focused on geographic expansion and new product innovation to support increasing consumer demand.

"Turkey Hill is experiencing strong and growing consumer demand nationwide for its broad assortment of branded ice cream and refrigerated drinks. We as a company are focused on providing our consumers with high-quality, authentic products with category-leading flavor variety," says John Cox, chief executive officer.

The company's existing footprint already includes what is said to be one of the largest production facilities of ice cream and refrigerated drinks in the country—a state-of-the-art facility powered by 100% renewable energy and situated on 72-plus acres along the Susquehanna River. Turkey Hill's investment plan includes capacity expansion, investments in existing lines to provide the latest technology and manufacturing capabilities and facility renovations and enhancements to support its associates.
